Given that cos2x=7/12 and "270 equal or < 2x equal or < 360", find sinx.

Please help and Thank you

  • Trig Help - ,

    In these type of quesstions it usually asks for the "exact" value of ....

    cos 2x = 7/12

    cos 2x = 1 - 2sin^2 x
    2 sin^2 x = 1 - cos 2x = 1 - 7/12 = 5/12
    sin^2 x = 5/24
    sin x = ± √(5/24)
    but 270 < 2x ≤ 360
    135 ≤ x ≤ 180 ---> x in in I or II, so
    sinx = +√5/√24 = √30/12

  • Trig Help - ,

    how did you get the ã30/12?

  • Trig Help - ,

    sqrt(5)/2sqrt(6)

    when you rationalize the denominator you times both top and bottom by sqrt(6) only not the 2 right?
